As each day draws one step closer to the end of the age and the cataclysmic events God has spoken of in the book of Revelation, the chosen remnant prepares themselves for the long-awaited end of the age. Like never before the believer must be aware of the plan God has hidden in the scriptures to deliver His people from the outpouring of the plagues of judgement upon the evil foretold by the prophets. God always saves his people from the judgments of His Wrath upon the workers of iniquity. Speaking of the events of the end of age, Jesus said ~ “For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man” (Luke 21.35,36).
Written for the Last Generation
From cover to cover, the Bible is filled with examples of how God uses his miracle power to deliver his people from the judgments he pours out upon the wicked. Even just a quick look at the very first book of the Bible demonstrates how God saved Noah from the flood, Abraham from famine, Lot from catastrophic disaster, Isaac from recession, and Joseph from complete economic collapse. Each one of these events holds important concepts for us today; however, the New Testament makes it clear that the place to begin is at the 10 plagues of Egypt, where God made a ‘difference’ between His people and the unbelievers and saved his people out of total calamity. The New Testament states emphatically that the events that took place with Moses and the children of Israel are specifically written for us in the New Testament and particularly for the last generation — “upon whom the ends of the ages have come.” Consider ~ “Now these things became our examples… all these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come “(1Corinthians 10.6,11).
God’s People Delivered from Judgement
All of the events written in the books of Moses have specific lessons to be learned by the church of the last days, but the most important unquestionably is the institution of the sacred Passover Feast of ancient Israel, where God miraculously delivered his people from the final judgement (plague) upon Egypt. As usual, the symbols here must be correctly interpreted — Egypt refers to the corrupt world system, Pharaoh is Satan, the ten plagues are those of the book of Revelation at the end of the age, the forty-year journey in the desert is the Christian life during the final years of tribulation, and the promise land represents heaven. In the Ten Plagues, it is revealed how God makes a ‘difference’ between His people and the Egyptians the same way He will at the end of the age. ~ “Then there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt… But against none of the children of Israel… that you may know that the LORD does make a difference between the Egyptians and Israel” (Exodus 11.6-7).
God always makes a ‘difference’ between his people and the unbeliever. ~ “And they shall teach My people the difference between the holy and the unholy, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean” (Ezekiel 44.23). However, it must also be noted that those who God considers holy are almost always a very small remnant of his people, who truly seek and serve God with all of their heart. Out of Egypt the Bible says that God delivered 600,0001 men; however, only two of them enter the Promised Land, Joshua and Caleb. Lot and his two daughters were the only ones saved out of Sodom and Gomorrah, and only eight were saved out of the great flood at the time of Noah. ~ “In the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water” (1Peter 3.20). The Passover in the Old Testament and what we know as Communion in the New Testament reveal how God saves His people out of calamity. Only those who enter into communion and live in communion are the true church who is saved.
Who Will Be Saved?
The Passover, which is communion in the New Testament, reveals who will be saved. It is not a question of participating in the symbolic ritual, which anyone could do, but participating in the spiritual reality that is symbolized by the carnal ceremony. Passover reveals the true Church, which will be saved. The blood of the Lamb, which is the New Testament,2 is applied by each member of the true Church to the Door,3 which is Christ.4 Anyone can enter the true Church and be saved by following this divine order, that is by applying the New Testament to the door and then entering into the Church/communion by acting on the New Testament. This is how one is protected by the Blood of the Lamb from the plagues of the Antichrist.5
“And they [the church] overcame him [Antichrist] by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
